A sustainable 4.5% dividend yield. Built up a war chest of about $1.4 billion as they are anticipating some really good US properties coming on the market. Extraordinarily well managed.

Strongest management team in the oil patch. Sitting on top of 2 of the biggest pools, the lower Shawnason (?) and the Bakken, probably 4 billion barrels each. Have done a brilliant job of drilling and getting their costs down. At about 56,000 barrels a day now and when they get it to 100,000 plus, probably a major will take them out.

(A Top Pick Jan 28/09. Up 12.71%.) Reduced his holdings but at this point, would be a cautious buyer.
